Hi I’m Carl a director, based in Southern Africa.
I have directed Commercials and Films for large Global Brands and organisations such as P&G, Vodafone, UNICEF and the EU.
My work is narrative driven with an authentic touch. Having a personal relationship with multiple sports disciplines I enjoy directing sport orientated pieces. Exploring what drives sports professionals and showcasing their tenacity and discipline.
Here is a little bit about me.
I grew up in Lesotho, although of Irish decent. Lesotho is where I completed my primary and secondary school. I really appreciate my intercultural childhood having attended international schools. I feel it has helped in developing a humble understanding of different cultures.
I graduated from AFDA film school in 2009 with awards for Best Director and Writer. I have since gone on to direct commercials and short Films all with a very local flavour.
I have learnt to manage my own budgets and work under many constraints. I appreciated this learning, thus forcing me to be innovative, decisive, and think on the spot as a Director. Regardless of limitations I know how to make do with what I have.
It’s not what you got, but what you do with what you got.
